In line with predictions, Eicher reported robust Q2FY24 revenue/EBITDA increase of 17%/32% YoY to 4,110 crore/ 1,090 crore. Over FY23–26E, the brokerage project’s a revenue CAGR of 10%, driven by new product development and network expansion. In the face of more intense competition, recent releases like the Meteor 650cc and Himalayan 450cc, together with the next lineup, have the ability to accelerate growth. The firm has maintained its rating after raising its target price by 8.5%.

“We reckon the earnings CAGR would be 18% led by expanding scale, better net pricing and increasing sales of accessories. We argue EIM would be largely unaffected by the EV transition over the next few years as the acceptance of EV cruisers shall be gradual. Retain ‘BUY’ with a Sep-24E TP of 4,200 (earlier Mar-24E TP of 3,870),” the brokerage said.

The brokerage stated that Eicher Motors surpassed forecasts in 2QFY24, achieving a consolidated EBITDA margin of 26.4% (compared to an expected 25.6%). Despite a poorer mix, the full impact of 1Q price increases and RM cost savings was mitigated. Royal Enfield’s introduction of the Himalayan 452cc on a new platform has increased rivalry among premium bike manufacturers.

“We upgrade our FY24E/FY25E SA EPS by 6%/3%, to factor in margin expansion due to benign RM costs and higher other income. However, we maintain our estimates for VECV. We reiterate our Neutral rating on the stock with a target price of 3,800 (premised on Sep’25E-based SOTP),” the brokerage said.
